It's only the day before your mom comes over to see your new place for the first time that you realize the place that you thought you had cleaned up really nice for the holidays and would only need to spruce up a little bit is a dirty dusty slimy smelly germy cesspool and what do I have to do to get this faucet to shine? Is this PERMANENT guk on it? Some plumber YEARS ago just left putty on it, didn't he? And why can't I get this grease off the kitchen wall? I've scrubbed and used chemicals strong enough to kill elephants at fourty paces and it WON'T COME OFF! Why do we have electrical cords THERE? This place is a fire trap! Where the hell did all this dust and cobwebs come from? They weren't there this weekend! Why the HELL have I been putting off cleaning this place till today, it obviously needs 8 hours of cleaning for the last week!

Mm, the procrastinator's worst nightmare: mom. -__-

Good luck with cleaning!

Still procrastinating, but I expect to put on the 80's new wave channel on cable soon and that should get me a bit more motivated...

That is, by far, the most perfect icon I have ever seen to accompany ANY post/comment/reply/whatever that has ANYTHING to do with 80s New Wave. I love it. ♥!!

One of the many advantages of still living at home. No parental visits. ;)

They never get on your ass about the condition of your room or the stuff you left in the kitchen?

And I actually INVITED this. She's never met 3 out of 4 of her grandcats... She would rather not bother to drive this far. *facepalm*

I used to get yelled at because of my bedroom, but mother has realised it's a bit of a lost cause now.

Though, the stuff I leave in the kitchen.. gwah.

Mother: "There's a crumb on the breakfast bar that wasn't there five minutes ago, Stephanie!"

I'm in the same boat chicka. I wonder if your mother has the same voice thing mine does. When I'm in my room or something, especially when I'm waking up and she yells my name, there's some tone she uses without realizing it that reminds me of nails on a chalkboard...
